Thank you to all of our loyal customers and supporters who visited us in Shirlington Village (Arlington, VA) over the past seven years. It’s a wonderful community which we’re sorry to leave, but we have closed that location in order to scale up production of our cake in a jar. Please continue to visit our original retail location at 1506 U St., NW Washington, DC 20009 for all of your birthday cakes and cupcake fixes.

I’m very excited to announce that CakeLove has partnered with a distributor in NYC to bring our cake in a jar product line further north, from Philadelphia to Boston. We look forward to spreading our love in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

With 2015 upon us, change is all around us and we’re embracing it at CakeLove. I thought for a while that moving the bulk of our operations from retail sales to wholesale would be draining or sad or just not a welcome experience. But I’m finding it quite the opposite. Our jars of Cake & Icing have me more energized than ever. I’m thankful and just love how much people are embracing them. Cake to go, in a jar, portable….whatever you want to call them, they’re just fun and delicious!

Happy New Year and thanks for your support!

September 2014

It’s a busy time of year at home and work so we wanted to take a few days before saying hello and greeting you with our September update. As always there’s a lot going on, but this month is a bit more packed than most.

Cake in a Jar and the Big Picture

I hope that you’ve heard or read word of my sincere appreciation for your feedback that has led to the development of cake in a jar. But if you haven’t, I want to thank all of our customers, fans, followers and critics for your feedback over the years. By listening closely to what you said we’ve been given a gift that we’ve turned into this new and very exciting product line.

Cake in a jar is giving CakeLove an opportunity to share our love and mad science for cake with people well beyond the Washington, DC metro area. Your feedback and comments have helped us innovate our way into a new business. Part of the opportunity costs for pursuing the jars has meant we’ve discontinued some of our retail locations which, of course, comes with some regret. But the promising outlook for this new line of business is thrilling and fun! h

National Harbor

Thank you for six great years at National Harbor! We ended our storefront presence on Labor Day but look forward to having our jars available through some of the local merchants in the coming weeks. Please look out for announcements on where they’ll be available.

New Flavors for Jars

We’ll be excited to bring back the Pumpkin cake in a jar in October – our pumpkin cake spiced with a hint of cloves then paired with vanilla cream cheese icing. We’re also very excited about a new seasonal flavor: Caramel Apple. The cake is adapted from the Washington State cake in United Cakes of America.

And don’t forget to check out the 12 oz size options for the jars in Carrot, Salty Caramel, Triple Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Strawberry Shortcake and Gluten-Free Salty Caramel. They’re a great deal at $9.99/each.

Fall highlights

We’re thrilled to announce starting on or around Sept 10th you can purchase the jars on Relay

Check our FB page for updates on Tastings and new retail shops where CakeLove will be available.

I’m excited to return to EPCOT Center for the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival. I’ll make the Caramel Apple cake in a jar for the Party of the Senses on Oct 11th and host a Cooking Demo on Oct 12th.

After 7 years of serving the Silver Spring community cakes, cupcakes and more, we’re announcing that the CakeLove Silver Spring shop will have it’s last day tomorrow, Wednesday Jan 29th.

Of course we’re sad to say goodbye, but we want to thank you for all of your support for our mission to bake cakes and cupcake with the finest ingredients and a lot of love!
